Fort Pulaski National Monument

The Union Army took control of Hilton Head Island after the Battle of Port Royal Sound in November 1861. More than 15,000 Union troops landed on the island to establish a large military base. From Hilton Head, Union forces conducted military actions along the South Atlantic coastline. These troops supported Union efforts to blockade southern ports and establish footholds in South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. They also provided support for attacks on Fort Pulaski and Fort Sumter.
